The Georgia Sheriffs’ Association created the Civil Process Division to promote basic and advanced training in the area of civil process, as well as increase the networking capabilities between those deputies whose primary job is the service of civil process.
The Civil Process Division provides technical assistance to sheriffs’ offices as it pertains to the service of civil process, assist with issues involving compliance with the law, disseminate civil process information, and facilitate the standardization of civil process statewide through the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association.
Civil Process Training Seminar
The Georgia Sheriffs’ Association Civil Process Division conducts an annual seminar devoted exclusively to civil process topics. The training is a popular source of training for deputy sheriffs who wish to expand their knowledge in this specialized area.
